Ex-justice mulls run for governor
Llano lawyer Bob Gammage, a former Texas Supreme Court justice, says he might enter what he calls a sleepy race for the Democratic gubernatorial nod in 2006.
"My closest and best friends have asked me if I've completely lost my mind," Gammage said Friday.
Gammage, 67, a mediation attorney whose consideration surfaced this week on blogs, including the Democrat-oriented Burnt Orange Report, said he's weighing whether he can raise enough money to run and whether his candidacy would draw grass-roots support.
"If I can bring all the pieces together, we're going to do it," said Gammage, who supported the 2004 presidential campaign of Gen. Wesley Clark, a Democrat. "I see a terrible need."
Who wants to see Nyle Maxwell in drag? Round Rock mayor will put his bra on like anyone else: one cup at a time
Round Rock Mayor Nyle Maxwell will be wearing a dress when he plays Mother Ginger in a Dec. 11 Ballet Austin matinee performance of "The Nutcracker" at the Bass Concert Hall in Austin.
This is the same dude who got his panties in a wad back in September when Saradora's, a Round Rock coffeehouse, packed the house with a cross-dresser show.
The difference between what's going on in Austin/Travis County and Williamson County regarding Texas 130 is discussed in this article, Counties may veer on road to 130
. Here's what Rep. Mike Krusee had to say:
State Rep. Mike Krusee, a Republican who represents Williamson County and is chairman of the House Transportation Committee, has been active both in Williamson County's discussions and in Envision Central Texas. He said his county will be open to any recommendations that come out of the group.
The key in Williamson County, Krusee said, will be the results of Envision Central Texas' work. Travis County, he said, focuses more on the process, and the vast array of political interests in the city and on the Envision Central Texas board means that both entities move more slowly.
"It's so much easier to do things in Williamson County," Krusee said. Austin-area leaders "are not just sitting on their hands. There are just a lot more cats to herd in Travis than there are in Williamson."
And Travis County is not run by one party and therefore they can't just ram stuff through. They have accountability, we don't.
